The Popinator Launches Popcorn Right Into Your Mouth

This is a video from popcorn purveyor 'Popcorn, Indiana' of the Popinator, a popcorn shooting cannon that allegedly uses a binaural microphone array to identify where you mouth is when you say 'POP', then shoots a piece straight down your gullet. It's not a product for sale, just a marketing campaign for the company, and I'm not 100% sure it's even functional. You never get to see the thing shoot two pieces of popcorn at two separate targets in a single scene, so it might very well be faked. A move that, if not quickly disproved with another video, will require we boycott the company. Orville Redenbacher's never tried to trick us before!

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Max, who melts two sticks of butter for every bag of popcorn he makes. That...is not enough.
